Structured like a memoir, with tips about lobbying interwoven throughout, Lobbying for Libraries is a lively account of one woman's 21-year mission to get funding for libraries to establish systems that improve the way information is distributed nationwide. She offers valuable guidelines on how to lobby as an individual or group, design a bill, communicate with policy makers through traditional and new technologies, and how to influence the legislative process. Hoduski has quilted the fabric of her experiences in policy making into an insightful book that is as entertaining as it is useful.
